Recipe: Festive Chocolate and Clementine Fridge Cake

1 MIN READ • 2nd December 2021
Daniella Gray by Daniella Gray

Kick-start the festive season with this delicious no-cook chocolate and clementine fridge cake. The burst of orange gives the recipe some zing, while the digestive biscuits and pistachios provide crunch and colour.

Ingredients

2 clementines

175g equal mix of sultanas, dried cranberries and dried mango, roughly chopped

100g The Groovy Food Company Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

100g The Groovy Food Company Organic Light Amber & Mild Agave Nectar

200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped

50g cocoa powder

100g digestive biscuits, roughly broken into 2cm pieces

75g pistachios, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Line a 20cm square baking tin or dish with baking parchment. Finely grate the zest of one clementine and set aside, then squeeze the juice into a bowl. Tip 150g of the dried fruit into the bowl with the juice, mix well and leave to soak for 30 mins
  2. When the fruit has finished soaking bring a small pan of water to the boil. Put the coconut oil, agave, chocolate, and a good pinch salt in a heatproof bowl and set over the simmering water, (making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Stir well until everything is melted and combined.
  3. Remove from the heat and sift over the cocoa powder. Mix thoroughly, then stir through the fruit and its soaking liquid, the biscuits, reserved zest of one clementine, and half the pistachios.
  4. Once everything is combined tip into the tin and level. Scatter over the remaining pistachios, 25g dried fruit and and grate over the zest of the second clementine. Chill for two to three hours, or until set, then cut into bars
